Ultimate Dinosaurs tour Keynote 2021 FEB Extract 4.001.jpeg


My prehistoric series 'Ultimate Dinosaurs' is out now. I wanted these books to be fun, funny and informative. My highly collectable, pocket-size series is the most up-to-date in 66 million years.

Did you know that not all dinosaurs are green and scaly, some were ginger and feathered, or that they didn't all roar, some may have cooed like pigeons, or that the ultimate prehistoric predator may not actually even be a dinosaur? These books encourage young readers to engage with science and aim to help them think differently about the world around them, revealing how new discoveries and breakthroughs occur in science every day. By looking at the evolutionary arms race, prey, predators, place, time, groups and species, my books reveal some new-look dinosaurs. The palaeo art is awesome and is all done by by Scott Hartman and Gabriel Ugueto and cartoon illustrations are by Ethan Kocak.

Pop a dinosaur in your pocket! Introductions from Chris Packham, Steve Backshall and Dr Jane Goodall. These are the most up-to-date dino books in 66 million years, also available in audio download!

'TV scientist, Professor Ben Garrod, is proud to be a geek as he mixes top level science and humour to prove that science is for everyone. Looking at the evolutionary arms race, prey, predators, place, time, groups and species, Ben reveals new-look dinosaurs. Additional sections include: Ask an Expert, New Science and Fossil Finder as well as quizzes to test your dinosaur knowledge.'

The adventures of a dog called Jack-Jack


Jack-Jack, the world's coolest dog, looks after orphaned chimpanzees in Africa; he's about to embark on his biggest adventure ever!

'I spend my days playing with baby chimps and having adventures with paranoid parrots, bouncing bushbabies and singing fleas. When I meet Ben, suddenly, I have more baths than ever before and get to ride on my first aeroplane flight, where my world is about to change forever. I'm about to meet crafty cats, cheeky chickens, mighty mammoths and a whole bunch of amazing new dogs, as I learn all about 'walkies', how to make my new human give me treats and maybe even the greatest mystery known to dogkind ... what are you all doing putting our poos in bags?' 


For as long as there have been species, there has been extinction. 


Here are the superstars of the story of life, from the super-weird to the super-ferocious. Usually a species has 10 million years or so of evolving, eating, chasing, playing, maybe doing homework, or even going to the moon before it goes extinct.

Collect all eight books about animals we have lost in mass extinctions caused by asteroids or mega-volcanoes, clashing continents and climate change.

The Chimpanzee and Me


This unique look at the evolution, behaviour, and conservation of our closest living relatives, the chimpanzees, is a celebration of a life-long love of chimps. 

For over two decades, I have studied chimpanzees to find ways to protect and understand them. Join me on a journey that has taken me around the world, studying eastern chimps in the humid forests of Uganda and the critically endangered western chimps of Liberia. 

From the illegal international pet trade, to bushmeat markets, and the effects of relentless habitat destruction – not to mention how your new furniture, your toothpaste

and even your mobile phone are all implicated in their falling numbers. 

In an interview with world-renowned primatologist Dr Jane Goodall, I show how we can protect the chimps of the future and help conserve this endlessly fascinating species.

Illustrated with full colour photos throughout.
